If you have a balance owed on your account, we will send a monthly statement. It will show separately the previous balance, any new charges, and any payments or credits applied during the month. After 30 days, if the account balance is not paid in full, your account may be charged a 1.5% finance charge on all outstanding balance accounts. If payment arrangements need to be made on your account, please consult with our business coordinator.
Insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company. We are NOT a party to this contract. We bill your primary insurance company only as a courtesy to you. Although we estimate what your insurance company may pay, it is the insurance company that makes the final determination of your payment. You AGREE to pay any portion of the charges not covered by insurance. If your insurance company fails to pay within 60 days, the full remaining balance is then due by you.
-If your insurance contract is set for the assignment of benefits to go to you (the insurance check will be mailed to you), then you are required to pay in full for your treatment up front @ all times. Example: Most Delta Dental & United Concordia policies.
Any estimated portion, which includes co-pay and deductibles, must be paid at time of service. All treatment that requires lab work has to be paid on the first visit to cover all lab fees.
Appointments As a courtesy, we will call you two days prior to your appointment to confirm the day and time. Should we be unable to speak with you personally, please be kind enough to call or email and confirm your appointment.
We care very much about our patients and our ability to provide comprehensive care. Comprehensive care is care delivered on a regular basis and keeps your patient status as "active". In the event you do not return to the office within a two year period, we will consider your status "inactive" and no longer a patient of record. Any appointments that are needed after the 2 year period will be made when scheduling permits through our hygiene department first. If you are no longer a patient of record, we will keep your records for a period of 7 years.
In case of divorce or separation, the party responsible for the account prior to divorce or separation remains responsible for the account. After divorce or separation, the parent authorizing treatment for a child will be the parent responsible for those subsequent charges. If the divorce decree requires the other parent to pay all or part of the treatment costs, it is the authorizing parent's responsibility to collect from the other parent. We do not play the middle man in these cases.
